The report is released by the Ministry of Justice and produced in accordance with arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.

Key findings this quarter

One request is being published this quarter: Key4Life.


Key4Life’s prison programme works to break the cycle of youth offending by focusing on emotional resilience, employability skills and providing on-going support after release from prison.

The results show that people who participated in the programme were significantly less likely to reoffend in the year following their release from prison than a matched sample, and the number of reoffences they committed in that period was also significantly lower.

Justice Data Lab service: available reoffending data

The Justice Data Lab team have brought in reoffending data for the first three quarters of 2016 into the service. It is now possible for an organisation to submit information on the individuals it was working with up to the end of September 2016, in addition to during the years 2002 to 2015.
